The day before, I was stitching away in my workroom when I heard banging noises from the back yard, I thought it was probably a couple of cats having an altercation and hitting the fence as they fought.
About five minutes later I was still hearing banging noises so I looked out the window, couldn't see anything so thought it must have been in the neighbour's yard. The noises got louder, I looked out again and saw a KANGAROO in our yard - WHAT TO DO (plus various assorted expletives) - it was hopping around madly, looking for a way out,
if you look at the centre bush on the right side,
you can just see the kangaroos back and tail,
you should be able to click on the photo to make it larger
so I closed all the curtains, then opened the side gate (checking to make sure the kangaroo wasn't in sight) so the kangaroo had somewhere else to go, and only then thought about taking a photo, (through the window), so used the camera on my phone, hence the not very good photo.
Shortly after the kangaroo jumped over the fence, I heard more crashes and thumps for a little while longer and then silence, so thankfully it must have got to open ground. While I enjoy having wildlife in the back yard, I'm hoping there are no more visits of this type.
